About Erin Jewell:

Erin was raised with the belief in the possibility that she could do anything, so she ended up quite quickly having a successful career in Sales Leadership positions in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry (Pfizer, Boston Scientific, Medtronic). 

She jumped four positions from individual contributor to global director of 3 business lines, 80 million in revenue, 200 direct and indirect reports, and felt completely unprepared. After 15 years in the healthcare sector, she decided that it was time to take a big leap and Co-Founded her own healthcare Start-Up, that built online wellness platforms. As it wasn’t scalable and IT wasn’t their core competency half a million later and 3 years down the line she stopped it. 

Now Erin is an Executive Mindset and Growth Coach, International Speaker and Professor of Leadership at Villanova University. As a Coach, Erin works with high-level executives to make the most out of their teams so they can have more impact.
